*** Empty Nest was sailed over on her own bottom from Cape Town South Africa and was NOT damaged by ANY hurricanes. She was ordered from the factory without generator or air conditioning, and owner added them here in Ft Lauderdale to cruise the warm Caribbean. Mast, Boom, Running and Standing Rigging all new in 2018 - installed by Nance and Underwood in Ft Lauderdale. This vessel is immaculate and ready to go now! 

I took these photos myself in May 2019 - this boat is immaculate, almost new condition and needs nothing! Contact us today for your private viewing. 


BUILDER'S REMARKS: The Leopard 44 was "Boat of the Year" when introduced in 2011. The judges were raving about the speed on the water, easy handling and the revolutionary forward cockpit.  The Leopard 44 features two cockpits, one fore and one aft with outside dining area protected by a functional hard-top bimini with mounted solar panels (back side). The galley-up has ample storage and a huge drawer type fridge and freezer. No steps up or down anywhere on the salon level. The 3-cabin layout features an owner-dedicated starboard hull with master stateroom, office area and large head with separate stall shower forward. Sailing the Leopard 44 is easy: both main and jib sheets lead to stoppers and self-tailing (electric) winches directly adjacent to the helm. There’s room for two on the bench-style helm seat, but you need only one to trim sails!

AVAILABILITY: Immediately in Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Duty paid.
